Rosa is an old Dutch “Clipper” barge that was completely refitted in 2010. Her saloon is particularly welcoming and features attractive wood paneling, comfortable seating and a cozy bar. There are 4 staterooms, each with full en-suite facilities and offering comfortable accommodation for 8 passengers.  



French natives, Dominique & Catherine, pride owners of the Rosa, took possession of the barge in 2010 to share their passion of their home region, Southwest France.

Your highly professional French & English speaking crew of 4 consists of:

Your captain, an experienced barge master, will impress you with his ability to guide his impossibly large vessel into the smallest lock and through the lowest of bridges with inches to spare.

Your tour guide will take your party around family-owned vineyards, fine castles or perhaps a small crystal works, but always returning you to your hotel barge in time for the next culinary event or cruising journey.

Your Master Chef, as well as creating the finest of dishes, is invariably something of a culinary historian and a mine of information when it comes to recipes, cheeses, and of course, wine.

Housekeeper and deck-hand busy themselves at keeping the ship clean and tidy, re-positioning the barge vehicle, preparing the bicycles and generally making sure everything is just how you would like it to be.
